The shooting occurred around 2:15 p.m. Thursday in the Penrose/Fayette Street Outreach neighborhood, and police said the 32-year-old victim, who was not immediately identified pending notification of his next of kin, died at University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center.
Twenty-five people have been killed so far this year.
Police processed the scene for more than an hour, taking away an overturned bicycle found not far from the victim.
Then they clipped down the crime scene tape, reopening the streets. A fire truck would later arrive to wash away the blood, hopefully before the young neighbors would encounter it.
